grumble grumble John Jones
Interesting film telling people to be safe in their work practices. We follow John Jones, who seems just about the most anal person around, has a perfect work safety record at work. It appears that his workmen don't seem to care for this at all though lol. Anyways, who cares! Safety! Don't smoke around paint! Don't leave aisles cluttered! Don't leave your acetane torch running while taking a break! You'll be able to come back home to your wife and lovely kid to spread more anal retentiveness around them. One final thing, I just love their front door on their house. Just love it.
**edit** One more thing, in the company scroll in the beginning of all the companies concerned about safety, I find it interesting that this is a Jam Handy film, but Chevrolet is not listed as one of them. Dun dun dun..

Safety Film For Adults
Safety in the home, behind the wheel and at work is a common sense thing which I presume most people in those days had a great deal of. Nice look at the W Chicago neighborhood in northside Detroit in the late 30's.
Lack of Eastern European surnames on the safety list for this factory is unusual for Detroit - especially in those days. Of course JH had to keep this film "generic" for use anywhere it was sold.
